Hurlingham Midweek Veterans' AC Tournament Report

[<<] [>>] by Hugh Carlisle at Hurlingham
6-8 Sep 2016 (AC - Handicap)

Three more days (6-8 September) of perfect weather, magnificent lawns and sparkling play from the Over-Sixties, who travelled from far and wide, including Australia.

We were split into two groups, the Ancients and the Seniors, with two advanced handicap games a day, and this format seemed to work well. Frances Colman won the Ancients and is now down to 9; Tony Bingham was the unbeaten Senior and is now on 8, having started the season on 14. Hugh Carlisle was the runner-up in the Ancients'; but there was a three-way tie for second place in the Seniors', with the decision going to Graham Brightwell on net scores.

Many of the players said that they would be there next year and we look forward to seeing them.
